Title: Just One Day (Just One Day, #1)
Author: Gayle Forman
Genre: contemporary, new adult
Release date: January 8, 2013 by Dutton Juvenile


A breathtaking journey toward self-discovery and true love, from the author of If I StayJust One Day is the first in a sweepingly romantic duet of novels!

When sheltered American good girl Allyson “LuLu” Healey first meets laid-back Dutch actor Willem De Ruiter at an underground performance of Twelfth Night in England, there’s an undeniable spark. After just one day together, that spark bursts into a flame, or so it seems to Allyson, until the following morning, when she wakes up after a whirlwind day in Paris to discover that Willem has left. Over the next year, Allyson embarks on a journey to come to terms with the narrow confines of her life, and through Shakespeare, travel, and a quest for her almost-true-love, to break free of those confines.

If not for middle grade and young adult titles, this week’s New Releases list would have been considerably shorter. Normally, that wouldn’t be the best news in my book–not a huge YA reader–but I’ve personally made a resolution to pick and read a few more such titles this year. Expanding horizons, and all that. If this week is any indication, there will be plenty of solid picks to choose from….

Doomed, a video-game themed dystopian retelling of the Pandora myth. Through the Ever Night, the followup to popular YA dystopian romance Under the Never Sky. Realistic contemporary YA The Tragedy Paper, about star crossed high schoolers steeped in…you guessed it, tragedy.

Have you read the YA horror The Replacement? The author of that book, Brenna Yovanoff, has written a new YA horror called Paper Valentine–which, from the looks of it, is a unique and macabre tale of ghosts and murder. And then there’s Revolution 19, a YA dystopian all about…robots? ooooh…

There are, of course, some intriguing-looking adult titles. Promising romances include Prince of Power (wizards and vampires!), Primitive Nights (Native American intrigue), Asher’s Dilemma (time travel and steampunk), and the latest from Janet Evanovich and Dorien Kelly, The Husband List (gilded-age romantic mystery).

. . .

    Hmmmm I will have to investigate some of these titles.

    I need the new Jayne Ann Krentz, and of course, the last Robert Jordan book! And yes, I did made some resolutions, to break the most important one of them within a week. If you really want to know, read my blog 😉

    What does it say about me that, when I skim through these covers, JUST looking at the covers, I am only drawn to YA books? Are my art preferences stunted? Or do adult books just have horrifyingly bland covers?

    Thanks for explaining what the MG stood for! I’m not entirely sure I understand all the distinctions between middle grade, young adult, and new adult, tho. It’s starting to get complicated–unnecessarily so.

    Will have to check some of these out.

    My resolution ~should~ have been to go on a book diet, but that wouldn’t have fooled anyone, least of all myself.
